I'm trying to download winamp's website in case they shut it down. I need to download literally everything.

I tried once with wget and I managed to download the website itself pretty well but when I try to download any file from it it gives a file without an extension or name. how can I fix that?

You may need to mirror the website completely, but be aware that some links may really dead. You can use HTTrack or wget:

wget -r # or whatever

With HTTrack, first install it:

sudo apt-get install httrack

now run it just 1 external link:

httrack --ext-depth=1

This will download the winapp CDN files, but not the files in the files in the files in the whole internet.
